We got some Great pic.s of a Red Tail Hawk on the Mill Creek Pond

Shelly was out feeding the Ducks and noticed a Hawk in our backyard!

He is just sitting on the fence to the common area, not even to worried about us.

Looks like he is getting ready to leave.

This is probably the most common hawk in North America. If you’ve got sharp eyes you’ll see several individuals on almost any long car ride, anywhere. Red-tailed Hawks soar above open fields, slowly turning circles on their broad, rounded wings. Other times you’ll see them atop telephone poles, eyes fixed on the ground to catch the movements of a vole or a rabbit, or simply waiting out cold weather before climbing a thermal updraft into the sky.

He flew off so I went down to the Weir to get this Pic. and on my way back there he was on my neighbor’s fence poising for me!

Here he goes again.

What a lucky shot! He is landing in the common area, this guy has some injuries to his claws and he is really limping. Shelly tried to feed him a can of tuna fish, but he flew off again.

I am very Grateful that we have a backyard that has such a great variety of birds that visit us, this was a grueling weekend of work and to have Shelly call me outside to view this wonderful bird was an unbelievable break that I sure needed.

  1. Hi there. Great pictures of the Red-tailed Hawk. The landing shots sure show the red tail feathers nicely, good work! I live in Toronto, Canada, and earlier this week, my wife, Jean, and I came upon an adult Red-tailed Hawk in Markham, Ontario. We have read that stalking a hawk is no easy task,that you have to sneak up on them when they are looking the other way. Well, this Hawk was only looking one way when it landed, and that was right at us! Fortunately, we had our camera with us and got some good pictures and video. We have posted them for anyone interested at: http://frametoframe.ca/photo-essay-red-tailed-hawk-sighting-markham-ontario
